Our make up blogger went to check out the latest Alistair Izobell production called Huistoe and this is what she had to say…

I had the pleasure of seeing Huistoe at the Artscape Opera house last night for baydu.co.za and what an experience it was!

Directed by Alistair Izobell, Huistoe truly is a musical celebration of a huge part of our culture and history that has been completely forgotten sadly. This show allows us to remember our family members who once lived in the former District Six and let’s us appreciate District Six for what it once was.

I can’t even begin to imagine how lost people must have felt being forced out of their homes for no reason, forced to start all over somewhere else, forced to leave your memories behind…although I have heard all about it from my mom who went through it.

Government officials gave four primary reasons for the removals. In accordance with apartheid philosophy, it stated that interracial interaction bred conflict, necessitating the separation of the races. They deemed District Six a slum, fit only for clearance, not rehabilitation. They also portrayed the area as crime-ridden and dangerous. They claimed that the district was a vice den, full of immoral activities like gambling, drinking, and prostitution. Though these were the official reasons, most residents believed that the government sought the land because of its proximity to the City Centre, Table Mountain and the harbour.

If you have not seen the show as yet, you still have a chance to catch the last show taking place this coming Saturday, 30 April 2016 at 11:00 and ticket prices range from R80.00 to R100.00. The show is only an hour long so I’m sure you can squeeze it into your Saturday morning routine, you won’t be sorry.

Hope you found this post interesting.

Till next time,
